Add Our Upcoming Dances to Your Calendar

S-97 (River Falls Road) is closed due to a bridge collapse from Devil's Fork Rd to Oil Camp Creek Rd. Closure is projected to last until June 1. This is just south of Gap Creek Rd intersection and the River Falls Lodge.  Anyone coming out River Falls Road can turn right on Devils Fork and that connects to Gap Creek Road.



It's almost time!!!  Set your alerts, mark your calendars ... you don't want to miss this one!!!

Registration for Moondance 2015 will be open on June 1.  You can go to www.HarvestMoonFolk.org on June 1 to register online for the September 11-13, 2015 weekend at Table Rock State Park in Pickens, SC.

You'll be in time for the early registration discounts!  Plan now to dance the weekend away to the unbelievable sounds of the Coffee Zombies and Stollen Gold, with masterful calling by Darlene Underwood and Charlotte Crittenden.  Join us in creating Moondance magic once again.


Please do not park, even part way, on the highway or the circle (River Falls Road or River Falls Lodge Road) including the bridge.  Instead park fully on the grass. We want to make the roads clear for emergency vehicles to be able to easily get through.  We also do not want to have any problems with any law officials.  If possible, car pool to save on parking space.  Thank you for your attention on this matter.
